Green Lady

The Green Lady campsite was named after the ghost that sometimes appears in the area and at the nearby graveyard (located just off-site and part of the neighbouring hotel). 

The Green lady site is split into six bookable areas.  Each area can hold up to 15-20 campers.  In addition, each site has its own timber built shelter which can be used as a store and cooking/dining area.

The site is situated at top/bottom end (southern end) of the campsite (depending on your perspective) and sits below the highest point of the campsite (marked by a small cairn).

The site also has a small toilet block nearby.

Groups can book the whole area and this would allow groups of up to 150 people (approximately) to use this area.
